Maybe it was because he beat rival Rafael Nadal, but Roger Federer said he was totally cool with Nick Kyrgios’ underhanded serve he used last night in Acapulco.
“Underarm is definitely a tactic, I believe,” Federer said. “Especially when guys are hugging the fence in the back. From that standpoint, shouldn’t be ashamed if you try it out, just look silly if you miss it sometimes. Why not try it?
“The problem is in practice, you never really try it. When you come out in the big stage in front of a full crowd…tricky to pull off.”
Federer said he didn’t watch the match, but saw the highlights.
“The end was epic, had everything, dramatic,” Federer said. “It was I’m sure definitely a good match to be in the stadium to watch as a fan.”
ok *NOW* this match has had everything… @AbiertoTelcel @NickKyrgios

Martina Hingis used the underhanded serve at the FO 1999 final (against Steffi). It is legal? Of course, but not very much liked.
